What is

Vertical Freedom?

Vertical Freedom - entdecke die Freiheit in der Vertikalen 

Das EDELRID Magazin für Sport und Höhenarbeit

Bergsport ist unser Ursprung, unsere Leidenschaft geht aber darüber hinaus. Freiheit in der vertikalen Bewegung findet im Sport, aber auch in der Höhenarbeit und in der Baumpflege statt. Wir nutzen Synergien, damit unsere Produkte in allen Bereichen von unserer Entwicklungsarbeit profitieren. Auf der Suche nach neuen Lösungen denken wir „out of the box“ und verlassen ausgetretene Pfade zugunsten der besten Ergebnisse: sichere, innovative, nachhaltige, leichte Produkte.

Free movement in the vertical? Vertical Freedom? What does that actually mean? Of course, we have also dealt intensively with these questions... and also invited our athletes and partners to tell us how they experience Vertical Freedom.

Big walls, big dreams

Following your passion can mean so much: For Tommy Caldwell, being in the mountains and climbing the big walls means fun, inspiration, creativity, challenge, fear. To fail sometimes is painful and can set you back, but it is part of it, motivates him, shows him weaknesses and strengths, lets him grow and develop. In order to be completely with himself, he must be able to rely on his equipment without doubt, because only then can he concentrate fully on his passion and climb carefree.
